Southern Right's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is a classy South African Sauvignon Blanc from the renowned Hamilton Russell estate.

Named after the rare Southern Right whales that visit the nearby bay, this small, quality-led operation is now making big waves. Given the cool maritime location it is essentially Old World in style with lovely defined minerality and purity. And if you need any more reason to buy this fine South African wine, then it must be noted that for every bottle sold, the estate will donate to the conservation of the whales.

"The 2019 Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc underwent a small natural ferment in barrel. It has quite a punchy nose, the nettle, gooseberry and Granny Smith apple aromas storming from the glass. The palate is fresh and lively on the entry. As usual, this is a somewhat uncompromising Sauvignon Blanc with pungent bell pepper and light asparagus notes, good weight and a tangy, marmalade-tinged finish whose residual salinity beckons you back for more. Excellent." Neal Martin

"A small portion of this impressive, well-priced Sauvignon Blanc sees oak, but it's focused on other flavours. Savoury, sappy and salty, with elderflower and grapefruit notes, lovely precision and a textured, bone-dry finish.' 92 points - Tim Atkin
